Really wonderful place. The staff is exceptional, attentive, happy. The food is outstanding. My husband and I had our wedding here in October and they exceeded our expectations. How unique to find a place that has music which (1) starts early and (2) isn't loud.....but yet it's current and not boring.

New Chef, worth experiencing. Some of the classics remain on the menu so good if you want (now hard to find) French staples but if not there are some interesting new dishes as well. Rack of lamb was excellent and judging by our neighbors dish of lamb shank we may have not even had the best lamb dish in the house! We were all very pleasantly surprised. The service was absolutely 5 stars.

We have enjoyed dinning at the Roger Sherman on Christmas many times and this year was no exception. Would have preferred seating in the main dinning room but the fireplace area was an added touch that was nice. The owners and staff are always warm and friendly. The new Chef has chosen an excellent Menu both for Christmas and for other times. We look forward to dinning there again when we are back in New Canaan.

It was Christmas Eve and we were offered a table right in front of the bar where patrons stand.
I asked for a different table and was shown to a small table in front of the kitchen. It was a table for two that they added two chairs to to make it for four. Our bottles of peligrino and Wine didn’t even fit. We had to depend on staff to pour. We were sitting in the kitchen traffic at a timy table for prix fix $95 each. Plus we ordered two bottles of expensive wine. True, it’s a busy night but they should make sure that each table has adequate ambience. It shouldn’t be about how many they can possibly fit in!

The food and ambience were great, but the Roger Sherman needs to have more than one waiter in the dining room at lunchtime. Poor guy had too many patrons to attend to all by himself and we had to wait long minutes between courses and for coffee.

Service was very disappointing. No one was present at reception. We had to go a find a waiter to get seated. Even with few customers present, there was an extremely long wait to order. We had to ask for bread. Waitstaff was confused over what dishes to put on table. We had made a point of going to the restaurant to support this neighborhood establishment which had recently been ressusicitated after a proposed sale. Unfortunately, the experience was a disappointment.

The food was very delicious, but I'm only giving it three stars, because they were out of every entree my husband ordered. He had to look at a menu and place his dinner order three times! I know it was a busy Friday night, but the kitchen should anticipate the crowd.

The restaurant should have offered some sort of compensation for the inconvenience. They could have sent out a complementary desert at the very least.

The food was very good. I ordered the Dover sole menuarie and loved it. The fish was perfectly cooked, and the brown butter sauce had a salty and well balanced flavor.

I also enjoyed the atmosphere. The inn is tastefully decorated for the holidays. We sat in the cozy bar area and were treated to live music. Very enjoyable dinner experience, despite the menu limitations.
